BACK HOME

I have been home now for nearly two weeks, mainly catching up on things needing doing like getting the church newsletter out on time and that was followed by Stitching Friends group's newsletter which was emailed off last night, it must be the age thing but it seems to take me longer to get things done.  I have a couple of stitching fobs to share but first here is the last memory of my trip. The bus trip home was five hours with a short lunch break stop at Palmerston North, long enough to eat and take a short walk in the square. on the far side I could see pink flowers and when I reached them, there was this wonderful display of snap dragons.

I have been continuing to stitch a fob a month keeping to the woodland theme. here are the ones for September and October.
It is a challenge to find designs small enough so fobs like the little deer stitched for September will not be a scissor fob but will hang on one of my stitching bags.

The design chosen for October is the Rifleman the smallest of the NZ birds. The chart I used was from Maree Garstang's "More NZ Birds and Flowers" In stitching it I left the background tree section off. For mounting I had the perfect shade of green silk and used Chameleon perle thread "Olive Branch"for the cording.

 Today starts a new month and new stitching plans... these I will share with you shortly.
 Thank you for visiting.
